In addition to its usual excellent content, ((Especially check out “Zine vs. Art,” by Laura Trethewey, which explores what amounts to the gentrification of the zine scene.)) issue 54 of Broken Pencil contains two reviews from me, which I’m super excited about.
The first review is of Afflictions & Departures, by Madeline Sonik. Part memoir, part history, I later learned it was nominated as a finalist for the 2012 Charles Taylor Prize for literary non-fiction. Chimps of Fauna Sanctuary ended up claiming the prize, but Sonik was in excellent company.
It’s a great magazine, check it out!
